Abstract : The Weibull probability function is a widely accepted tool to model wind regimes. This paper presents a comparative study of different methods used to estimate Weibull parameters of a wind regime. Five different methods are described and used for the estimation. Time series data of wind speed over a whole year for two sites have been used for the study. The results obtained as a plot of error versus wind speed are similar in all the five methods, yet the method of standard deviation gives the best results.
